an increase in the defense budget. but back then we had planes that couldn't fly for lack of spare parts or pilots. we had navy vessels that couldn't leave harbor because of lack of crew or, again, lack of spare parts. today we're well on our way to a 600-ship navy. we have 543 at present. we have -- our military, the morale is high. i think the people should understand that two-thirds of the defense budget pays for pay and salary, or pay and pension. and then you add to that food and wardrobe, and all the other things, and you only have a small portion going for weapons. but i am determined that if ever our men are called on, they should have the best that we can provide in the manner of tools and weapons. there has been reference to expensive spare parts, hammers costing $500. well, we are the ones who found those. i think we've given the american people back their spirit. i think there's an optimism in the land and a patriotism, and i think that we're in a position once again to heed the words of thomas paine, who said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again.'' >> than

ladicals with safans. the american freedom defense initiative sued last month for the right to display the ads metro stations. they up in subway stations in new york city and the judge said they must be displayed in the d.c. area no later than 5:00 on monday. the metro sportsperson said that metro will comply with the order and the ads will go up this weekend. robert muse of the american freedom law center joins us live by phone. the attorney for a blogger who sued the right to put up the ads and good to have you with us, sir. >> it's great to be with you, sir. jot real fear here from metro, and i think, new york subways as well was the potential violence in the middle east, after the movie depicted someone who was bad or equated as a fraud. you didn't see it this way? no, in fact to equate that violence to anything that -- is pure speculation. one of the things can you see, and i am sure one of the viewers will see, all of the activity and violence going in the middle east. in a civil society, if you object to speech, the response to that is not to engage in violence but more speech a
of a sudden has to be on the defensive, and he doesn't handle it very well. >> there were several things that hart didn't handle well, but that's another story. >> he was reeling. we came right back in with another punch, which was the red phone. >> the most awesome, powerful responsibility in the world lies in the hand that picks up this phone. >> again, they used emotion to sell the idea that gary hart was style, not substance. >> vote as if the future of the world is at stake. >> decades later -- >> it's 3:00 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep, but there's a phone in the white house and it's ringing. >> hillary clinton's consultants used the same theme to attack barack obama. >> who do you want answering the phone? >> in this case it was barack obama, because he answered the red phone at 3:00 in the morning. said, gary heart answered the red phone at 2:00 in the morning. did they steal it from us? absolutely. >> today's ads are more likely to be direct attacks. >> barack obama, what a disappointment. >> americans say we don't like these attacks, but they do work. in the swing
, and reintegrate the revolutionaries in the defense and interior ministries, as well as other state institutions. before the first time since independence, we have political parties in the political arena there is freedom of expression in the press. there is unconditional freedom to demonstrate, the freedom of association, freedom to set up several institutions, unions as well as political and social, intellectual organizations without any limitations. this has led to a free dialogue and participation by all peoples in all parts of the world. mr. president, the time of the previous regime for more than four decades saw fragrant -- flagrant violations of human rights, torture, detention without trial, expeditionary killing, humiliation of citizens, mistreatment. the when the revolution erupted on 17 february through peaceful demonstrations, the previous regime faced them down with bullets and oppression in a grave violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. hence the human rights council suspended libya's membership in said council. and set up an international fact-finding c
been crushed for far less egregious defenses. >> why didn't anybody point that out? that was pretty nuts, both parties had him blessing. >> when you've got catholic running mates you don't really need to quote the far right catholic vote that heart. timothy dolan is not going to support the catholic side over to obama. i would surprised he would go to the convention. >> he kind of delivered a parting shot in his blessing saying we pray for those waiting to be born. it was clearly an anti abortion shot at the d.n.c. >> as soon as they're here, we can cut all funding for day care and public schools. what do you think is the most pressing issue for the female voter this year? it's easy to have todd akin as a booing gee man. what do you think is the number one voting issue for women in 2012. >> the economy job. women have lost more jobs under obama than any other president. that is a statistic the romney consistently rolls out women are suffering under obama more than any other president. it's not necessarily because of obama's policies. it's budget cuts in red states have forced them t
, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he deal with that in the debate for an hour and a half? so will obama go after the guy, not play defense, not finesse the guy, knock him out and end this thing. and will the other guy be able to deal with the unexpected, which perhaps will be obama coming after him, not him coming after obama. >> chris, when you talk about the president potentially going after mitt romney, do you mean in terms of stylistic aggression, or do you means in terms of trying to nail him as a flip-flopper or going really aggressively against his policies. which do you mean? >> i would say this. you are promising something new. you keep saying i've got something new. everything you've said sounds like what we got rid of because we had a disa
plan that the best offense is a good defense? finally, can barack obama get back into a winning mode? the polls were looking good going into this, right? you got two remaining debates with romney. we are going to get some answers and smeperspective from charles blow. i read your column and i know how you feel about this. give me the quick one-liner how you thought last night went? >> obama lost. i play basketball in high school and you're not in your best form and you lose it. doesn't mean you lose the election and the other guy is better. just means you danny show up that night and didn't do a good job. go back, look at the tape and practice hard and come back the next time and do a better job the next time. >> he let himself be interrupted. he didn't call out certain kinds of issues when mitt romney was able to walk through him and lay out a slew of stats. >> they widon't call what mitt was saying is facts. >> fact checkers hit both of them pried hard. charles, is this a question of the president who is trying to remain presidential and elegant and eloquent? that didn't work like,
and then a choice of how do you defend your policies. what we saw him unveil in defense of the tax cuts on wednesday night was identical to the bush defense of the tax cuts which gave paul krugman an aneurysm writing two clumolumns week saying this is bs. george bush would say are you kidding? cut taxes for the wealthy that's not what i'm interested in doing. >> sort of the explanation of mitt romney is more what andrew sullivan has said, that he's just a salesman. so if he's in front of audience a, the sell is this. if he's in front of audience b, the sell is that and he's doing marketing proposals for whatever audience is in front of them because the real mitt romney is just a businessman and willing to sell the product to whoever it is, whether left, right, thought of being an ultraliberal would get him to be president he would say that. i just need the 51% i need, get me what i need. >> now he cares about the 100% and channeling the specter of h.w. bush and adopting the trickle down government line which to me, howard, you can explain this to everybody, to me that was do i end up with the depart
. ronald reagan lost most of that debate. he was on the defensive. jimmy carter was attacking him. and then he had this positively brilliant close about are you better off? and he did it so well. peter hart did a bunch of focus groups before and after. clearly reagan had a lower threshold. he had to prove to people he was acceptable. >> that's what mitt -- you're describing mitt romney. you're describing mitt romney because voters -- >> voters don't have the kind of negatives. he did not have 51% of people having an unfavorable view. secondly, you could say mitt romney is as good a debater all you want. gipper against mitt romney when it comes to charm, people saying i want to have this guy on television for four years, it's no contest. >> willie, following up on what mike barnicle said, the one thing mitt romney has going for him is who he is running against. there are a lot of republicans that voted for barack obama that are disappointed. there are a lot of independents that voted for obama who are disappointed. there are a lot of conservatives who don't want to vote for them th
-sector capacity building, including investment in strong as ever defense protections and work- force training. for tickets, industry and government have worked together to protect the physical security of critical assets that reside in private hands. airports and seaports to national broadcast systems and nuclear power plants. there is no reason why we cannot work together in the same way to protect the cyber 62 systems of our core critical infrastructure upon which so much of our economic well-being, national security, and the lives depend. in the current landscape, we execute cybersecurity missions under an amalgam of existing statutory and executive authorities that need to be updated, clarified, and streamlined. the plain fact is we must address cyber security now, not years from now, and dhs is committed to working with all affected parties to move forward quickly on this issue. in the meantime we are moving forward on building our own world-class cybersecurity team and a strong dependable work force pipeline for the future. where making investments in the cyber workforce to growing our
the president on the defensive and letting him explain his record because obama '08 no longer exists. those debates were great for him because he can run on promises, he can make people feel hopeful. he now has to run on his record. >> i agree with this. jennifer granholm, when i watched the convention speeches for the democratic convention, i thought that bill clinton made a mesmerizing speech, brilliant both in the rhetoric and the devil of the detail which was undeniable. all the fact checkers attacked him the next day and didn't find anything to attack him over. you then have barack obama the next night and i just didn't think it was nearly as good. i thought that was a bit of a problem even though the clinton effect can help him, the barack obama now has not got that sort of messianic feel he had four years ago. he's got to really raise his game in these debates. >> the great thing about this debate is that it gives him the chance to directly confront mitt romney on what his plans are. mitt romney has been talking generally about how he's going to save the country from the economic mes
. >> thanks for being here. i am part of the children's defense clinic here at richmond. we recently read miller v. alabama. what do you feel about the treatment of juveniles in the justice system? to their need to be any changes? >> the way i view my job is actually to decide cases, and not the state lots of views about, here is what i think about penal reform, or here is what i think about children in the justice system. there are a range of legal questions that i might have views about, but in the end, it is really -- that is not the way i conceive my role. i conceive my role as a judge to decide particular cases, and the issues in those cases that come before me. in miller and jackson, speaking for five members of the court, i addressed one of those questions, which was a question about mandatory life without parole sentencing for juveniles. as my vote reflects, i thought mandatory life sentencing for juveniles is inappropriate, and the justice should have discretion to decide whether it is life without parole or some lesser penalty. in signing that case, i am not deciding, and will n
billion deficit. you will not slow defense spending. you refuse to do that. >> mr. mondale, your time is up. >> as we get closer to the first presidential debate, we are looking back at the dates from our archives starting with president reagan and walter mondale at 7:00 eastern. later in the evening, the 1992 debate between george bush, bill clinton, and prospero -- ross perot. >> republican vice president joe candidate paul ryan is making campaign stops in new hampshire and ohio. here is his campaign rally from this morning in new hampshire. he speaks for about half an hour. ♪ >> thank you so much for coming out, everybody. thank you so much. thank you for hosting us. thank you for sending mitt romney to the white house and barack obama back to chicago. [applause] it is so great to be back here. this is a beautiful place and a beautiful state. i brought my beautiful wife with me as well. [applause] she is here with my sister and brother-in-law. they live right over the border in boston. i do not know if that is a good or bad thing to everybody here. my sister lives in boston. she
president of foreign defense policies studies at the american enterprise institute. thanks to both of now for joining us. these are dramatic pictures and dramatic events. as i'm reading about this, i'm reading about tear gas being used against demonstrators setting fire to tires. there there is all kinds of reports what is going on right now in iran. i mean is this the beginning of something big? walid, what do you think? >> well, yes that is the next wave we've been waiting for. remember in 2009 there was a massive demonstration of about 1.5 to two million iranians. mostly youth. but that was a political reason. now because of an economic reason. it is very serious. all defense militia -- melissa, depends not on how many are in the streets and depends what the international community is going to do including the united states. melissa: do you agree with that? >> i don't think it is the beginning of the end for the regime. i think the regime is at risk because this is something that affects all iranians. it is not about the nuclear program which many iranians don't care. it is not about s
's children that will ensure a strong defense down the road. please take this opportunity to turn off your cell phones. thank you. joining us today are four distinguished retired military leaders and representatives from the department of defense who are concerned with childhood obesity posing a real threat to our long-term national security. let me introduce our speakers our general richard miers, u.s. air force retired, served as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff from 2001-2005. admiral james loy, u.s. coast guard retired, a former deputy to u.s. secretary -- secretary, the security breach lieutenant general norma spike and general pinkney. our first speaker will be admiral willloy. we'll take a few questions from the media. and then we will separate one- on-one interviews. thank you. >> good morning to you all. thank you, amy, and thank you for your personal commitment to this cause. if you folks think herding cats is difficult, think of 200 officers. thanks to the leadership of the team, we have made good progress over the last couple of years. two years ago, our initial report en
the sacrifices for us. my concern when it comes to defense is we're headed to a fiscal cliff. we're looking at sequestration. we're looking at $500 billion in cuts to the department of defense. with sequestration, if that happens, that is another $500 billion. we're looking at the smallest army since 1950, the smallest air force ever. that cannot happen. we need to make a commitment to our military. when you have the director of the department of defense, the secretary, saying this is a bullet to the head, this is devastating, he will take whatever he can get. we're at a fiscal cliff, and these cuts to our defense are at the forefront of it. >> your balanced budget amendment will take the sequester and multiply it by at least seven. the cuts that would be imposed -- hearing slogans in support of the veterans, but the amendment will not support it. neither presidential candidate -- 80% have never served in the military, and when it comes to the time when they come home, it matters. >> i thank you for your service to our country. but i believe everyone would make a sound decision, and it woul
of texas. and we are waiting for thea, peels relate to the defensive marriage act and section 8, as marriage between only a man and a woman. we will get a preview from a d.o.j. official. republican lawmakers are demanding answers about the cofnsalate in libya that left four americans dead. the head of the house homelaommg for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. joining us, a member of the house armed services committee. sir, thank you for your time today. >> you are welcome. good to be here. >> shannon: do you feel you have been briefed and brought up to date at this point? what are the biggest outstanding, remaining questions for you at this point? >> we were given a classified brief beige hillary clinton and others. i feel like we got more from the niewrns than from the briefing. i think it was very inadequate and unhelpful. i agree with peter king. and susan rice should be resign. this is incompetence at best or a coverup at worst. >> shannon: all right. do you feel she was sent with the best information she had at the time? she did say at points, this is
million tax cut if governor romney's plan was enacted. $2 trillion in defense spending that our pentagon and military leadership say we don't know. another trillion dollars to extend all of the bush tax cuts. that's $8 trillion. the notion that somehow by wealthy they're, the middle class is going to be held harmless. the middle class has to understand, if romney wins this presidential election, they'll be paying the bill not to reduce the deficit, not to reduce jobs, to give huge tax cuts to the wealthy. >> the idea of the president is not going to tell the truth, has become the theme inside the romney camp. here's what governor romney said. >> you learned and studied all this about president obama as a debater, what are you looking? >> i think he's going to say a lot of things that aren't accurate. you know, i would be tempted to go back to that wonderful line by ronald reagan, there you go again. >> he's admitted that your campaign has gone overboard at times with the rhetoric, are you worried that president obama is going to have a rough night with the fact-checkers wednesday night?
have a sane defense now, when oil companies are determining where we're going to go to war and stuff like that i don't think it's smart. i don't think any of that stuff a smart. i think it's unworkable for a long, long time. >> cenk: first day in office what will you do? >> i will make war illegal, and pot legal. >> cenk: not such a bad slogan. i have to correct something i said in that interview, the senate voted 90-1. roseanne also has a new back out called "[ inaudible ] from the nut farm." we'll also be talking to other third-party candidates as we go forward. next week rocky anderson and gary johnson will be on the program. when we come back we'll have the elbow of the day on top of mitt romney's head. plus we have the perspective of an american basketball player who went to iran. what was his experience? >> i love black people. >> >> cenk: so often in our media and our political leader they insinuate that iran is crazy. oh my god! if they have nuclear weapons! we are all crazy. >> benjamin netenyahu said yesterday this. >> some people have begun to
. that is the most important thing. the defense of our country really is the most important thing. this president's attitude towards the mideast has caused the whole middle east to be up in flames. everybody can watch on their television. what do they think this is caused by? it is caused by a very weak attitude towards -- these terrorists are irrational. any person that would put a bomb on their children and send them into a restaurant, you're never going to rationalize with them, because they want to go to paradise, to heaven. how anybody can dig their going to talk to him -- he is naive and was never equipped to be president. i was very happy that he got in because he was black and i thought that was a wonderful thing for america, could have a black president, but i really don't understand how anybody can vote him in again. host: let's look at an opinion piece in the wall street journal. other opinions stories today -- we're asking whether you plan to what the presidential debate tomorrow night. in's hear from rachel florida and on our democrat line it. caller: thanks for taking my call. i wou
over each other] >> his defense lawyer says $10,000 and i don't want him going through that federal correctional facility, because i am afraid that he will get killed or split with a hundred thousand dollar bounty on his head. dispassionately, objectively, if you get caught in the system, it is not the same standard as a criminal trial. you don't have to prove the same thing be one so normally this is late, all right, don't do it again. >> under the probation system, it is not beyond a reasonable doubt. they allow hearsay, and you can go to jail for two or three years for a noncriminal offense. it is very convenient. it is a coincidence at this point of this man is in jail for making a stupid video. is that consistent with the governments being that the video caused the death of the ambassador? >> are we trying to send a message to the people who did this to us? the people who stormed our embassy and raise the black flag of al qaeda? those who murdered our ambassador and three others that we share their outrage? >> the justice department would deny it. the president would time and t
the people that he has as guests on his show or in a debate setting. not to put swuns on the defensive, but they can hang themselves with their own words sometimes. it's interesting to watch that interplay. >> with the exception of chris christ christie, both sides are trying to lower expectations in the debate in the last two weeks. the daily show had an amusing take on that last night. >> you're with the romney camp. how is he doing? >> you hate to beat an uphill battle like this. this is a president, the greater or for this country has seen since lincoln. >> you're with the president. >> the frightened president, john. like little girl scared. i mean, mitt romney, talk about brilliant. two harvard degrees. the guy has never even lost an argument. >> he's no slouch. i mean, he's the president. >> smoke and mirrors. right now they're drilling him on basic grammar skills. >> romney's people just hope he remains upright. he's a big napper, john. big napper. mitt romney, 90 minutes awake and upright means big win for the camp. >> so jonathan, pugh had an interesting poll showing that pre
and the $1 trillion cuts to defense and domestic programs. a new report out today says this could be a plan developing to help lawmakers move forward on it all. "new york times" reports that colorado democratic senator bennett and tennessee republican senator alexander are representing their parties and would in part set a deficit reduction target of $4 trillion over 10 years. congressional committee would do the work taking six to 12 months figuring out how to achieve that with tax increases and cuts to federal programs. if that fails, part two would then be an automatic deficit reduction structure in effect, likely similar to simpson-bowles. finally, lawmakers are likely under this framework, to vote to put off the tax increases and the automatic spending cuts physical some sometime in 2013. barring some action, here are examples of what would happen in 2013. if your income is $40,000 to $60,000, your taxes go up $2,000 next year. if you are in the top 20 percent with an income over $108,000 your tax bill goes up by $14,000. if you are in the top 1 percent and make over $506,000 your taxe
and then contrast that strongly and put romney on the defensive about the fact how can you actually tell the american people that the policies you support, which are the same that created this mess, are going to lead us to a different direction and then don't filibuster. i love the president, but boy, he has a tendency to go on and on in some of those questions and in a debate, that can get you in trouble. >> get in, get out. new polling is showing mitt romney has narrowed the gap. good news for him. in the last two weeks and your tips, you said the governor needs to show passion for the country and it people. what does he say to voters to do that because there is still the sting from that 47% remark that people are not walking away from that is resognating. >> one of the things we often had conversations with rick santorum about. he had no lack of passion on the stage. one of the things he did was leave everybody in a negative tone. with the statistics of where we are now. unemployment being high and poverty being high. and then just walk off and say thanks, everybody. we kept trying to
's argument is breathtakingly dishonest. he says mitt romney wants a $5 trillion tax cut. that's defensible because he doesn't want to lower the rates. then he says in order to pay for it he has to raise tax on the middle class. the study he's because that on admits it's making that. you. mitt romney has never proposed raising taxes on the middle class. you might as well -- it's just as plausible to say mitt romney is going to pay for this tax cut by invading canada and seizing their oil wells. it's fictional assertions they are passing off as fact and saying romney is campaigning on raising middle class taxes. meanwhile the only way to pay for all of the spend can that barack obama has done and will continue to do under his budget is to raise taxes. a dollar spent is a dollar taxed. >> style is important in debates. and john kennedy when people listened on the radio did not win the first debate. he won the presidency because looking at the two of them on television, richard nixon lost the debate temperature that happened last night and barack obama has to do better on style. bill: in momen
precious medicare, medicaid and precious defense. those people are phony. >>neil: do you think he is alone? think again. forget kicking the can down the road because the can is about to kit back. we have the executive director of "the can kicks back." you appear to be younger than the good senator but you share the same goal, right, to get hopping. >>guest: correct. we are an organization whose main goal is for a long-term comprehensive bipartisan deficit reduction goal. in our opinion that deal needs to have the millennium voice. if not, there will not be a deal we believe. >>neil: would the group be if their 20's? >>guest: between 18 and 32. >>neil: you telling them when it comes to entitlements, especially, we don't start addressing this, there will be nothing for any of us? >>guest: right. we are trying to connect the issue to their lives. we saying you need to hear about this because sometimes it is hard to tell people, here is what will happen 40 years down the road. what we are telling them, we are talking about lost opportunity. to be honest, they are angry. they want to do somethi
